  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  
   

OTTAWA, Ontario, June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --  In celebration of Canada's exceptional history of peaceful co-existence with the United States, the Royal Canadian Mint is pleased to announce it is launching the limited-edition Pride of Two Nations two-coin set, created in partnership with the United States Mint. This coin set, featuring numismatic renditions of the famed designs of Canadian and American bullion coins, will become available to the public on July 3, 2019.    

The 2019 Pride of Two Nations Limited Edition Two-Coin Set

"The maple leaf and eagle are proud symbols of our neighbouring nations, which have grown and prospered together for more than 150 years," said Marie Lemay, President and CEO of the  Royal Canadian Mint. "We are proud that these same emblems, found on our famous Silver Maple Leaf and Silver Eagle bullion coins, could be brought together in an inspiring new coin set that celebrates the special bond between Canada and the United States."

The set contains a special numismatic version of a Silver Maple Leaf coin, featuring a modified proof finish and reverse design, as well as a United States Mint American Eagle 1 oz. silver coin with an enhanced reverse proof finish.  Both finishes are firsts for these coins.

The reverse of the Silver Maple Leaf coin features Walter Ott's classic sugar maple design, first created in 1979.  That icon of the Mint's Maple Leaf family of bullion coins rests on a background of radial lines encircled by a pattern of stars and maple leaves on the perimeter. This same pattern surrounds the Susanna Blunt effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.  

The obverse (heads) of the American Eagle 1 oz. silver coin features Adolph A. Weinman's full-length figure of Liberty in full stride enveloped in folds of the star spangled banner, with her right hand extended and branches of the laurel and oak in her left. The coin's reverse (tails) features a heraldic eagle with shield, clutching an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.

These stunning numismatic coins are packaged in a special clamshell case branded with the logos of the Royal Canadian Mint and US Mint.   Inside, a certificate emblazoned with imagery of the Canadian and American flags adds an eye-catching touch of colour.

Images of the Pride of Two Nations Coin Set are available here.

Limited to a mintage of 10,000 and retailing for $189.95. This product may be ordered directly from the Mint at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada, 1-800-268-6468 in the US, or on the Mint's web site as of July 3, 2019. The coin set is also available at the  Royal Canadian Mint's boutiques in Ottawa and Winnipeg, as well as through our global network of dealers and distributors, including participating Canada Post outlets.
